- Cute Plastic Bottle
- Hot Glue
Measure an inch and a half (37 mm) from the base of the water bottle, and mark with a pen. Use sharp scissors to cut away the bottom from the bottle. Do the same with another empty plastic bottle.
Select a zipper that wraps around the bottle comfortably. We found a seven-inch zipper fits perfectly with an 18- or 20-ounce bottle. Secure the zipper to the inside of one bottle with hot glue. Create small lines of glue and press quickly while hot for best results.
Open the zipper, and attach the top just like you did the bottom.
Zip the container together, and you’re ready to store your stuff!
How easy is that?
